Cherry accepts and recycles tear-off composition asphalt shingles at three of our five Houston area recycling centers. We also accept used and manufacturer waste shingles. And, we’ll deliver trailers for customers to fill with removed shingles and then return to pick them up for recycling.
Shingles become hot-mix asphalt
Recycled residential composition shingles are primarily used in hot-mix asphalt for road paving and cold patch materials. Using recycled asphalt shingles in hot-mix can actually improve the pavement’s performance by increasing its resistance to wear and moisture and decreasing deformation, thermal fatigue and cracking.
